    many of the dock workers support these actions. Goldman Sachs owns the shipping company.

    Actually there's some truth to that. Many West Coast longshoremen benefit from six-figure union wages. Not that this excuses Occupy's stupidity, just something I'd like to point out.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Probably, but that's not a job you want to slack off from, just creates much much more work when they return.

    Occupy protesters try to disrupt ports; police make arrests - CNN.com

    The port protesters are focusing on terminals owned by SSA Marine, saying it is owed by the Goldman Sachs investment firm, which they argue exemplifies corporate greed and is anti-union.

    The union "shares the Occupy movement's concerns about the future of the middle class and corporate abuses," ILWU President Robert McEllrath wrote to locals last week"
